I am using the free stuff.Tried Norton(which really slowed down my PC), tried AVG(also slow), Avast(don't like looks and lack of speed) where I could not surf at the same time. I had AVG and monitor was giving me trouble, I was suspecting AV program had something to do with it...downloaded Avira 9 personal and that program found: 3 viruses that AVG was sitting on AND asked me if I wanted the monitor settings reset"for it sensed that they were off". (I had only been fighting with the screwy… Read Full Review

I signed up for a free copy of Avira which at the time I was happy with. All seemed to be working well until a virus hit and knocked out the functionality of Avira completely. I therefore had to download a different anti-virus package to clear the virus and never went back. From my experience of Avira the scans are thorough but it might not be able to deal with the virus once it finds it… Read Full Review

It's simply the best Antivirus with the best detections rate.
It has got some false positives but the program let you choose what to do.
Just adjust the settings to medium security level and the FP will be gone.
I never had promblems with FP, Avira is tested by you tube and detected much more virusses then Kaspersky and other AV programs.
Very light on resources as well, together with PC tools firewall plus, the ultimate combo....runs like a charm… Read Full Review

When you buy a Premium licence suite x3 from them you should be able to relax! But when you do all the downloads and scans, find something odd and run ESET's free download tool and find 2 Trojans and a Worm, its not good enough! I'm furious. I've wasted over 7 hours on this, so I'm voting with my feet and going to get a refund or else! Beecee… Read Full Review

I have used this for a number of years on many platforms and on Windows 7 now. Works on Win 7 x64 and AMD.
It works first time every time out of the box.
It finds many threats the others miss!
Regular updates that work every time.
If you want worry free AV then go with this.
The free version is quite adequate in most cases.

ive used the free software for a long time, and it picks up everything. So i figured i might as well go for the full protection and purchased the premium security package. My advice dont bother.
I had a few problems with the inital installation, tried to contact Avira and they asked me to call their customer support helpline. These were all in Europe ie Germany. None in the UK. all were 090 numbers and they cost like £1.50 pm. No-way i was going to call that, so i sent them an email. All the… Read Full Review

Funny isn't it, when you see many anti virus ratings Avira is never the top, would this be because there isn't any profit in selling it... I and many other people use it so why is it left out of the comparisons charts while many people swear by it.
I use the Premium version and found no problems at all, prior to reformatted my hard drive I uninstalled it and tried three others.... they all came up clean n' green so Avira just gotta be doing something, mind you I use Firefox and never allow… Read Full Review

I used the free version for a while, which I found to be very good. I like the plain, light-weight tree-based UI and the fact that it uses less RAM than other anti-virus programs, whilst still be fast and having excellent detection abilities.
I bought the premium version, which doesn't appear to be significantly different from the free version, because I wanted priority support and also to help support this excellent software, which gives about 40% of the cost of the premium software to… Read Full Review

Would I recommend it to a friend? Absolutely!
I have tried various free anti virus softwares before and I consider Avira one of the best I have used.
I was a little skeptical when someone referred this antivirus before since I never heard of it. Boy I was wrong, it truly has good performance and the quality of its scan is great.
Thanks to Avira… Read Full Review

I find that Avira AntiVirus have certainly outdone a lot of the AntiViruses already exisitng in the Market. Personally I use their completely free version but what I want to say is exactly what I like about Avira.
Firstly I like it because it is Free, then because it works like a dream and finally it's unobtrusive nor does it seem to cause a decrease in perfromance.
Using Avira in my opinion is a smart move. Compared with othter free anti-virus software there aren't many which can say they… Read Full Review

avira antivir antivirus catches more virus/trojans than other popular free AV progs.
Very easy to setup, does not require subsequent "tweeking".
Works straight out the box, updates itself.
Integrates with Windows Security.
Dont forget to switch Windows Firewall OFF once Avira is installed.
